And Snowball (Kevin Hart) believes, despite the other pets’ teasing, that he’s a superhero after his owner starts dressing him in superhero pajamas. But when Daisy (Tiffany Haddish), a fearless Shih Tzu, shows up to ask for Snowball’s help on a dangerous mission, he’ll have to summon the courage to become the hero he’s been pretending to be.

ECHO IN THE CANYON Comes to Blu-ray + DVD on 9/10

echo in the canyon

The story of what became known as the California Sound – a pop music renaissance exemplified by such artists as The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield and The Mamas and the Papas – is recounted in the universally acclaimed and top-grossing new film.
ECHO IN THE CANYON. The music-filled documentary, featuring a who’s who of folk rock giants, will be released on Greenwich Entertainment blu-ray, DVD and digital platforms on September 10, 2019.
ECHO IN THE CANYON celebrates the explosion of popular music that came out of Los Angeles’ Laurel Canyon in the mid-1960s as folk went electric and The Byrds, The Beach Boys, Buffalo Springfield and The Mamas and the Papas gave birth to the California Sound. 1965-67 was a moment when bands came to L.A. to emulate The Beatles, and Laurel Canyon emerged as a hotbed of creativity and collaboration for a new generation of musicians who would soon put an indelible stamp on American popular music.
Featuring musician Jakob Dylan as interviewer, the film explores the Laurel Canyon scene via never-before-heard personal details behind the bands and their songs, and how that music continues to inspire listeners and musicians today. ECHO IN THE CANYON contains candid conversations and performances with Brian Wilson (The Beach Boys), Michelle Phillips (The Mamas and the Papas), Stephen Stills (Buffalo Springfield), David Crosby, Roger McGuinn (The Byrds), John Sebastian (The Lovin’ Spoonful), their contemporaries Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, Graham Nash, and slightly younger followers Jackson Browne and Tom Petty (in his last filmed interview). Also interviewed are contemporary musicians influenced by their music such as Beck, Fiona Apple, Cat Power, Regina Spektor and Norah Jones.
The Greenwich Entertainment theatrical release has earned over $3 million to date, making it currently the eighth-highest-grossing documentary so far of 2019. It also scored the highest per-screen average during its opening weekend: $59,000.
ECHO IN THE CANYON held the prestigious opening-night slot at the LA Film Festival, and also was a highlight of the Santa Barbara International Film Festival and DOC NYC.
ECHO IN THE CANYON has received widespread critical praise. Steve Pond of The Wrapcalled it “an enjoyable snapshot of a moment in time, and of the way that moment is reflected and refracted in the hands of today’s musicians.” Pete Hammond of Deadline said the film is “sensational … irresistible in every way.” “A resonant tribute to an almost-bygone era,” wrote Justin Lowe of The Hollywood Reporter. “May the echoes from the Canyon be heard for centuries to come,” said the Chicago Sun-Times‘ Richard Roeper.
